Another recipe this week created after I spent some time testing out a range of kitchen appliances from SEVERIN, courtesy of Homespares. I’ve joined them in their Great Big Oven Ban Challenge in hopes that people would be “encourged to think outside of the box when it comes to cooking methods, and to dig out those appliances they may have used once and then shoved to the back if the cupboard and actually get their use out of them!”
Today is the turn of the Crêpe Maker and it is a lot of fun! We often make pancakes at the weekend and I always end up with a huge mess to clean up in the kitchen afterwards. However whilst using this handy appliance I was somehow able to keep the damage to a minimum because everything just stayed in one place, which was great!
The non stick surface heated up quickly and I was able to keep great control of the temperature whilst cooking my crêpes. I loved that the heat was distributed evenly so everything cooked quickly and all at the same time (something that can be tricky when making crêpes of this size on the hob). I didn’t even need to use any oil and the handy spreading and flipping tools made the job fun and effortless.
I love wholegrain crêpes, they are hearty and delicious. My absolute favourite filling is steamed/stewed apples (with the skin on) and clean blueberry jam…. MMmmmmmm!!!
This Crêpe Maker is really versitile and can be used to cook all kinds of pancakes, omelettes, flatbreads and wraps. Just like the Induction Hob, it would be great for anyone with a small or no kitchen or to take away with you on holiday. It is quite big, which is great for cooking on (you could easily fit 3 American style pancakes on at one time) but you may need to find some spare cupboard space for it to live when you are not using it.
I was sent the SEVERIN Crêpe Maker courtesy of Homespares for review as part of their Great Big Oven Ban Challenge. All views are my own.
Clean Eating Spelt Crêpes
- Yield: 4 Servings
I love wholegrain crêpes, they are hearty and delicious. My absolute favourite filling is steamed/stewed apples (with the skin on) and clean blueberry jam.
- 150 grams Whole Spelt Flour
- 1 Egg organic if possible
- 150 ml Milk of choice I used whole organic milk
- 150 ml Water
- Place the flour into a large mixing bowl and add the egg and milk into the middle.
- Whisk together and add the water, still whisking, until the mixture is light and thin.
- Set the mixture aside.
- Heat the crepe maker over a low heat until the green light shows to indicate it is ready to use.
- Ladle on the mixture and smooth out with the spreading tool.
- Once the top is no longer wet, gently flip the crepe over using the paddle and cook for a short while on the other side.
- Continue until all of the mixture has been used up. Serve with your favourite fillings.
